THE EVOLUTION OF A MESSENGER

THE EVOLUTION OF A MESSENGER

By: Mark Carven Olds, Managing Director –

Midwest Minority Think Tank for Public Policy, Leadership, and Service, LLC

www.blacksforchange.com

Colin Kaepernick has arrived into the conversation of America and the world.  His name is now on the lips of people who are not football enthusiasts.  Many may not know his position on the field, or what a quarterback really does.  Colin Kaepernick is now a 28 year old male, who has viewed the reality of being Black in America.  His vision of this reality has ignited a growing movement among his peers.  Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was only 26, when the Montgomery Bus Boycott leadership mantle was thrust upon him.  We now recognize that beginning to be associated with the Civil Rights Movement.  The core values of the Civil Rights Movement all lead to justice.

Colin Kaepernick has emerged as a leader by simply following a process set before him.  He has come forth through a system that adored him as a:

  • Student Athlete loved,
  • Professional Athlete adored, and
  • Courageous Man of Integrity misunderstood.

As a student athlete, his potential was highly appreciated.  Colin began playing football at age 8. He went on to win several punt, pass, and kick contests.  Colin was nourished and nurtured through every level of competition both academically and athletically.  He graduated from John H. Pittman High School in Turlock, California with 4.0 GPA.  Colin was a dominate basketball player.  Colin was nominated as an All-State Baseball, Basketball, and Football Player.  He was drafted by the Chicago Cubs out of high school to be a professional baseball player; instead, he chose the path to become a student athlete.  He was applauded as a student athlete at the University of Nevada Reno.  He was trained for life after his collegiate career.  He was armed with an education both academically and athletically.   Colin was loved as a student athlete.

As a professional athlete, he was adored by fans as he led the San Francisco 49’ers to an appearance in the Super Bowl in 2012 and the NFC Championship Game in 2013, only his second and third years in the league.  He set multiple records during that span including the most rushing yards (181) eclipsing Michael Vick’s old mark of 173.  Colin Kaepernick was rewarded with a 126 million dollar contract with 54 million guaranteed.  His team and fans adored Colin as a professional athlete.

As a courageous man of integrity, Colin’s education and cultural experiences has taught him life learning beyond the classroom and the athletic field.  He has learned what it means to be a Black man in America.  He has learned his history.  He has been trained in the system’s halls of higher learning.  He has reached the system’s stage of visibility through its athletic arena.  On this stage, Colin Kaepernick has chosen to sit or kneel to show that he has learned the meaning of the United States Constitution.  He has chosen to be a Black man, a courageous Black man, rather than just a professional athlete.  For being a courageous Black man, Colin Kaepernick has received death threats.  For being a man, a courageous man of integrity, Colin Kaepernick has been misunderstood.

May Colin Kaepernick’s decision to become a courageous man of integrity challenge his peers and his generation to launch a Movement for Justice for Black People in America.

THE EMERGENCE OF THE COLIN KAEPERNICK MESSAGE

  • A voice that expresses the sentiments of the people must not be silenced.
THE EMERGENCE OF THE COLIN KAEPERNICK MESSAGE

(A RESPONSE INDEPENDENT OF THE EUROCENTRIC CONTROLLED MEDIA)

By:  Mark Carven Olds, Managing Director, Midwest Minority Think Tank for Public Policy, Leadership, and Service, LLC

Beyond the personal support of the man, Colin Kaepernick.  I support the level of Black Consciousness that his actions have raised.  I have no personal knowledge of Colin Kaepernick’s faith commitment or any of his organizational allegiance.  What I do possess; however, is a keen awareness of the absence of justice in America and an astute recognition of the presence of injustice.  I have to act on the absence of justice and the presence of injustice far more than any personal action taken by Colin Kaepernick.  In essence, I appreciate Brother Colin’s courage to launch a personal protest that may involve into a movement.  What must be seen going forward is the meaning of why he started his personal sit down as opposed to what the flag does or does not stand for, or the National Anthem represents or does not represent.

The personal action demand has been launched by injustice and oppression aimed at Blacks and other people of color in this nation.  Since Colin Kaepernick has taken the systemic acts of oppression against the less fortunate personally, each individual must not look solely to Colin Kaepernick for a next course of action.  The question now becomes, what will you do as an individual?  What will be your individual protest or proactive response to the current plight of injustice?  Kaepernick has risked his career and his earning capacity on the line.  Will you stand or sit at the next high school football game?  Do you feel strong enough about the injustice to risk your son or nephew an opportunity to get a scholarship to college?  Or, do you feel the struggle should be left to others on a bigger stage?

Let us not allow “the Colin Kaepernick Experience” to become only a star-studded, trendy event. Should that become the course of action, then there will be the risk that entire effort will quickly fade.  This significant moment and opportunity should not be tabled until the next hottest thing appears.

  • In the comfort of your own home, what do you plan to do when the Nation Anthem is played?
  • In the confines of your own heart, what will you be thinking?
  • In the inner chambers of your heart, what action will be prompted within you when the Black National Anthem (Lift Every Voice and Sing) is played?

Some have suggested America (as far back as “the Ray Charles Rendition”) should be the Nation Anthem.

As related to the National Anthem controversy, I have a suggestion in the midst of the calls for dialogue and discussion.  I hereby suggest, “A’INT NO STOPPIN’ US NOW” by Whitehead and McFadden.  Colin Kaepernick has reminded us as well inspired us to move from merely standing to doing.  Whitehead and McFadden have reminded us and Colin Kaepernick and other professional athletes have shown us that we are on the move – A CHANGE IS COMING!

Rather than the continuous reliance on the Eurocentric controlled media for dialogue, discussion, and direction, www.blacksforchange.com proffers a platform of inclusion, proactive engagement, solution deployment.

WWW.BLACKSFORCHANGE.COM  has been launched as a website that shall embody the disenfranchised people of the Black community in a fresh empowering endeavor. The mission shall present an organism that will substantially contribute to the unification of the African-American community. Through an illustration of Black unity, an invitation can then be extended to ingratiate all other minority groups. When a path to unity has been clearly identified by a grassroots initiative among Black people, other minority groups will have a paragon to follow. This will reflect the same paradigm as the Black Movements for Civil Rights has served in the past.
The call to register on www.blacksforchange.com  should never be confused as voter registration drive associated with any primary or general election. When you register on www.blacksforchange.com, you will have acted on a precise call to become part of a campaign to set forth solutions. WWW.BLACKSFORCHANGE.COM  shall directly impact the African-American community by opening a platform to every individual. Once you, your family, and your friends successfully register on www.blacksforchange.com, you have taken a proactive measure to help build a solidarity voice. This solidarity voice campaign has a realistic goal to become One Million Strong by Black History Month (February)-2017.
One Million Voices in solidarity, who have no political affiliation and have no allegiance to any political machine, will have assembled a strong force in America to present solutions rather a continuous round endless political rhetoric. Black America will have in the Solidarity of One Million Strong Voices, connected by www.blacksforchange.com, an independent voice not controlled by political machines or grant dollars. Most of all, back room deals will no longer be camouflaged by designated Black leaders who supposedly speak for the people. WWW.BLACKSFORCHANGE.COM  will represent the voice of the people, allowing each individual to set forth their solution path. No longer will the Democratic Party Plantation speak for all Black people. When the intense message of this initiative has been effectively accomplished as well as successfully internalized, we will demonstrate strength as a clear communication of solutions to any conundrum. One Million Voices in Solidarity outside of the Democratic, Republican, Libertarian, Green, or any other political party, shall speak with power to the powers of the status quo. WWW.BLACKSFORCHANGE.COM  shall reflect one million plus voices collaborating to utter solutions and reveal the “Collective Genius” of a people who have been systemically oppressed by the existing order.
These committed voices will be empowered through www.blacksforchange.com.  They will have the ability to communicate with one another, access to form groups, and assets to express variant positions, while only seeking those individuals or institutions that will openly and spiritedly support the implementation of our solutions. It is not an option to give away our vote in the hope that the elected official will come back with something beneficial for the constituency. We have grown impatient with candidates and institutions, who only wish to dialogue, study, and talk statistics about the problems that exist.
WWW.BLACKSFORCHANGE.COM  has granted the mechanism for Change to come to African-Americans. Change will only come forth to full fruition as we disperse the solutions from within our own ranks. The dissemination mechanism is present in the revealing of www.blacksforchange.com.
You must exercise the privilege and opportunity to compose articles, post your videos, make known your solutions, and exemplify your approaches to elevate the state of all forty million plus Blacks living in America. There are so many features on the www.blacksforchange.com  website that will allow each individual to express their positive creativity. Let us be proactive in making history!

“THE RENEWAL OF A VOICE FOR A CONTINUOUS SOLIDARITY BREAKTHROUGH DAY!”

WWW.BLACKSFORCHANGE.COM

“THE RENEWAL OF A VOICE FOR A CONTINUOUS SOLIDARITY BREAKTHROUGH DAY!”

                The whole of society is clamoring for change.  Change, which shall improve the lot of the imperfect people and the impoverished people, will not come as a result of a political election.  Positive change for the oppressed people, the disadvantaged people can only emerge by a united front of those who have been designated as second class citizens and relegated to a suppressed populace state.

                Today, www.blacksforchange.com invites you to help empower the Black People in America by registering as a member on this site.  Membership on www.blacksforchange.com is non-invasive into your privacy.  It will; however, present a display of potential as a powerful unified effort. 

                  WWW.BLACKSFORCHANGE.COM shall present an opportunity for Brothers and Sisters to interact with a common thread to raise Black Consciousness.  You will be asked to give up far less personal data than a number of people freely give away daily on Facebook as well as a number of other web sites or social media hybrids.

                WWW.BLACKSFORCHANGE.COM is an endeavor owned and operated by Blacks.  It has been created by Blacks to advance solutions for Blacks as part of the ongoing “Solution Strategy” of the Midwest Minority Think Tank for Public Policy, Leadership, and Service, LLC.  This unique pioneering tool has been designed to further the awareness of Black Consciousness, while presenting a unified voice of solidarity among Blacks in America. 

                It serves well to reiterate at this point that “the call to register” on www.blacksforchange.com should never be confused as a voter registration drive associated with any local, state, national primary or general election.  When you have registered on www.blacksforchange.com, you will have proactively acted upon a precision call to become a functional part of an ongoing campaign to set forth solutions that shall elevate all Blacks.  WWW.BLACKSFORCHANGE.COM shall directly impact the African-American community by opening access to a platform to every member in more than a symbolic gesture.  Each voice of descendants of African slaves living in America can now be heard.

                Once you, your family, your friends as well as your acquaintances, your associates, and your colleagues have registered on www.blacksforchange.com, you will have in essence released a preemptive measure to help build a solidarity voice for the people.  This solidarity voice campaign has a realistically obtainable goal of One Million Strong by Black History Month (February) 2017.

                Black people should not and do not have to fear change.  Change, positive change for Blacks in America, – when congealed through solidarity – is inevitable.  We, African-Americans/Blacks in America, must unpretentiously become the engineers, who will determine what the positive change will engulf and represent.  The outcome of this social/theoretical engineering shall reveal itself as a watchword to be etched into Black Consciousness.  This positive change shall impact Black lives for generations to come.  A Change Is Coming!

                I have over 1100 friends on Facebook as well as followers of my blog and other social media venues, I make an earnest and urgent appeal to each and every one of you (if you have not already done so, as many already have) – please register today on www.blacksforchange.com.  In addition, I am urging you to lift up the watchword to join this Black Consciousness movement by uniting with www.blacksforchange.com.  Join with me and countless others who have determined to make this a catch phrase going forward: “make today and every day – THE RENEWAL OF A  VOICE FOR A CONTINUOUS SOLIDARITY BREAKTHROUGH DAY.”

                I strongly implore you to invite ten (10) others from your formal and informal list collaborators, coworkers, partners, and teammates to register on www.blacksforchange.com.  Join with www.blacksforchange.com and be a part of this history making venture.

                Our strategy at www.blacksforchange.com represents an easily launched and clearly defined initiative that will make each and every day: THE RENEWAL OF A VOICE FOR A CONTINUOUS SOLIDARITY BREAKTHROUGH DAY!

BLACK RELEVANCY

BLACK RELEVANCY

BLACK RELEVANCY TO SECURE A FUTURE FOR OUR YOUTH!
BLACK RELEVANCY TO SECURE A FUTURE FOR OUR YOUTH!

Black American Hemispheric Enterprise (Commerce engagement and venture zones throughout the Western Hemisphere) – Black Americans have been present in the Western Hemisphere without a self-accumulative economic opportunity.

Many others, individuals, corporations, and multinational companies, have all benefitted greatly from Black American labor and ingenuity.  The Black American Hemispheric Enterprise shall represent potential commerce engagement that can extend throughout North America, Central America, the Caribbean, and South America.  Import and export, raw materials and finished products must have a part in the Black American trade portfolio.  Black Americans shall seek trade opportunities that will provide expansion possibilities.

Venture zones throughout the Western Hemisphere shall produce the occasion for Black entrepreneurs to excel and achieve success within the Western Hemisphere.  These venture zones will create opportunities for Black wares to be introduced into broader markets.  Black venture zones will help establish market share, image redefinement, and investment opportunities throughout the Western Hemisphere.  New opportunism will arise for Black investors.  The venture zones will set in place a positive element to launch new commerce endeavors.  Expansion through the Western Hemisphere by Black American entrepreneurs shall represent an ambitious directive to increase productivity with the United States by a Black American owned manufacturing base.

Reciprocity for Black Men throughout the Global Community – There must be invoked a strategic plan to reach the goal to change any negative stereotypical images of Black men that may exist on foreign soils.  Furthermore, such an effort will raise the standard of excellence that shall become the norm of Black male expectancy.  This willcome forth through economic, cultural, political, social, and theological examples and practices.  Ultimately, this type of initiative will convey a distinct advantage that shall align reciprocity for Black men throughout the global community.

This will only manifest when Black men egress the White corporate structures or as agents representing the American government.  There must be a vehicle that will allow Black American men to represent their own interests.

Black American Entrepreneurs must be seen as representatives of Black owned commercial endeavors.  It will be at this point that Black Americans shall begin to achieve global community respect.  A Black American should not have to renounce his or her birthplace to demonstrate independent thinking or progressive ingenuity.  The Black cultural experience should illustrate more than an athletic or entertainment recognition.  The bonds of a people should also reflect the “Collective Genius.”  When the males of the Black people have become respected creatively along with other external visible attributes, then reciprocity will unfold throughout the global community.

A New Agenda for Blacks in the United States of America Must Originate from within – The status quo will no longer be a viable option for Black Americans.  Radical changes have arisen to the level of necessity in order to improve the quality of life for forty million plus people.  The issues and concerns of Black people cannot be left to elected officialsalone, nor to the conscious alignment of liberal leaning researchers.  The time has expired and the portrayal of a few Black faces in high profile positions will no longer find acceptable status among the imperfect people and the impoverished people.  The gatekeepers have no policy making power, nor moral strength to stand up for their people in the interpretation of, or the development of policies.  Symbolic street naming, building dedication, or statute erection will not elevate the current standard of existence.  Symbolism will not bring forth economic stability to a people who have been systemically excluded from commerce opportunities.

Symbolisms and iconic figures held in larger than life esteem will not deter crime, create business opportunity, or provide housing.  Food, shelter, and clothing must come through revenue generation that will provide dignity and respect.  Government handouts and the multiplication of entitlement programs have run their course.  Independent wealth creation, collaborative economic ventures, and social renaissance shall emerge once self-hatred has been conquered through a radical collective social status uplifting agenda.

A Black Political Base Centric to Black Concerns and Black Issues – Black Americans cannot afford to fashion their political base on historical party affiliation.  Black Americans must not feel chained to the Democratic Party out of the fear that they have no other options.  The time has arrived for a Black political base centric to Black concerns and Black issues without an isolationist posture.  Inclusion in the coeval system should not automatically dictate an abandonment of the needs centric to the forty million plus Black constituents.  Black Americans must have a fresh voting orientation.  A vote for an issue should not command an obligation to cast a ballot for a slate of candidates.  Black concerns and issues should be presented to potential candidates and not for the Black constituency to await what the candidates will present as their platform.

BLACK AMERICAN REPARATION – THE TERMS THEREOF

Reparation Must Be Defined
                                Reparation Must Be Defined

It is a widely known fact that the United States government failed to fund the Congressional Bill, which became Federal law that would have awarded each freed slave forty acres of land and a mule.  That would have been the less costly approach to Black American Reparation.

It is a widely known fact that the United States government failed to fund the Congressional Bill, which became Federal law that would have awarded each freed slave forty acres of land and a mule.  That would have been the less costly approach to Black American Reparation.

As a result of none funding of the legislation, Black Americans exited slavery with a tradition that would come to symbolize future political assessment.  This constituency would receive symbolic gestures while other Americans would become recipients of tangible opportunities.

 

White America and the American government must do more than issue a symbolic apology and a statement of regret read into the Congressional Records over the misdeeds of Black slavery on its shores.  The forty million plus Black Americans living in America should have a compensation awarded that could somewhat amend for the collateral damages as an aftermath of slavery.  Post slavery impairments have been almost as vicious as the slavery institution itself.  This can be clearly seen in the lack of opportunity for equal access to land and natural resources.

 

The forty acres would have proven more than a start to carve out a meager sustainable existence.  This would have represented a collective potential to build an economy based upon minerals and natural resources present in the earth. The United States Government and the States that made slavery legal still have massive land holdings. Compensation dialogue should start at this level for redefining Black American Reparation.
